They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Not only do I agree with this statement, but it’s my favourite meal of the day. Though I do admit that sometimes in the rush the only thing that can be afforded is a quick scarfing down of cereal (I love Special K), breakfast has the ability to set the tone of your entire day. For me, a delicious, prepared homemade breakfast calms me down for the day ahead and helps me to make better decisions. Something like this breakfast of the champions (go Seahawks! A team I picked last night whilst watching the game) of Baked Eggs with Parmesan, Spinach and Tomatoes was a staple for my daily breakfast for one entire summer. I lived, breathed and consistently ate this dish every day until I had to take a small break from it, although I didn’t want to. It’s just that good!
There is something about baked eggs that is much more enticing than regularly cooked eggs. Firstly, I think once we take time to put our meal together, we appreciate it more. Secondly, the baking process allows you to experience the flavours of an egg without oil to fry it, without butter to scramble it, and without water to poach it. Just the pure egg, mixed into delicious cream spinach that is found on the bottom, and a nice sprinkling of cheese and tomato sauce. While I said the tomato sauce is optional, I highly recommend it. Eggs are a staple group that seem to be able to be dressed up with anything and still be delicious. The tomatoes add a hint of the classic huevos rancheros to this meal (another meal to try!) and makes it easy to turn this into a brunch idea. It might not look like a lot, but one dish fills you up, unfortunately for me who tried to justify eating the other one too but I was just too full to. And with the dawn of Valentine’s Day upon us, your spouse of significant other will be happy of that fact. This is such a great breakfast in bed option because the mess is actually extremely easy to control, and very portable. While I’m usually not a huge fan of garnish, I love parsley or basil as a garnish here because it just adds another layer of freshness to the dish. Gives this dish a try, you’ll probably fall in love like I did!
